Statement by the Spokesperson on the Togolese Republic's subscription to the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation

The Togolese Republic announced this week that it had subscribed to the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation (HCoC), thereby becoming the 140th subscribing State.

This is an important step towards the universalisation and effective implementation of the Code of Conduct. All States that have not yet subscribed to the Code of Conduct are strongly encouraged to follow this example, in particular those with ballistic missile and space launch vehicle capabilities.

The Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation was adopted in 2002 and is the most important multilateral instrument for transparency and confidence-building in matters relating to ballistic missiles. The European Union strongly supports the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation, and all its Member States have subscribed to it.
